Pros

If you're looking for a strong company that is stable and wot be going anywhere soon then ups is for you. Must be able to work third shift for the first few years since day shift is reserved for higher seniority employees. Also, they will pay for your school in part (or full if you go to UofL or JCC and work 3rd shift). How can you beat that? Also, it is a unionized company.

Cons

Night shift, warehouse/outdoor work, must be able to work in any weather, 24/7 365 day operation, lock on vacation from thanksgiving to new years for peak season, training does not prepare you for operation

    Pros

    The work is physically demanding, the hours are adequate, and the tuition reimbursement is ideal for students. I get paid to exercise and go to school!

    Cons

    The work can be extremely challenging in the summer and winter; very few employees enjoy their work, which shows in their performance; and many supervisors could develop their people skills to improve their interactions with subordinates and other supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Many UPS employees are only there because they do not think they have other options. Talk to your employees and ask about their interests and what motivates them. Start seeing them as what they could be and hold to that vision; it might just improve their performance and allow them to see more possibilities for themselves.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits were excellent when I made it on the old contract before everyone else had to wait a year for them. Some supervisors say they wish they stayed as a loader. Tuiton reimbursement of $1500 per semester, $15000 for lifetime... hope you can handle doing $3000 worth of credits to finish your 2 year degree in 5.

    Cons

    Management was a joke... you get scowled more than praised doing your job and agree that safety bbqs were a joke. Pay sucks the first year and really just are worn down quickly from the job. Watched my co workers I started with drop down from 12 to 2 in a year. Not a job for anyone who has never done face paced heavy lifting

    Advice to Management

    Change working habits nothing and get a new set of managers in. Better yet, have the CEO go on undercover boss; I'd love to see that even more than ever.
